You don't need to do extraordinary things, be gifted with great intelligence, or make a fortune to be happy and successful.
If you have the talent and the desire you can do it, combined with the right mindset, it won't hinder your happiness.
But simply avoiding the unnecessary things that contribute to a difficult life is often enough to live a good life. Mr. Covey has synthesized 5 of them. He called them the “Emotional cancer.”

2022.01.25 14:29 Striking-Lettuce-285 Value of a masters if you did undergrad at a good school already?
I am an international student pursuing a bachelors in CS at a T5 university. I am a junior right now and have managed to land my first internship in the US for summer 22. As senior year comes closer though, I have been thinking more and more about whether I should go for a masters degree or start working full-time right away after graduation.
What would be the pros and cons of going for a masters instead of working full-time, both short and long term? In addition, does it make sense to work for a few years first and then return for a masters degree?
I guess I should also mention that I plan on going into academia at any point.
I have been pondering about this for a while now so decided to ask here.
Thanks in advance!

2022.01.25 14:29 Venom-- Which of these is the best budget option for reducing airborne noise?
Hi! I would like to reduce the airborne sound, specifically speaking, from an apartment travelling to the apartments above and below. No structural changes can be made and must be done on a tight budget so i've been spitballing these options:
I'm considering making my own sound panels with shop bought canvases that are 60x50cm. Then filling the back with a material like Rockwool or other loft insulation material. What material would I need to seal the back? And If i hang them on the wall would these make a tangible difference to reducing sound above and below?
I've seen some acoustic panels 30cm x 30cm x 1cm on Amazon UK that are made of Polyester Fibre and have an NRC rating of 0.95 but are quite expensive to buy multiple to cover an area. Can these help in reducing sound, and if they’re stuck on the ceiling would these help in muffling vocals to apartment above?
I’ve also seen 1 metre2 SM20 rubber panels, would these work being stuck on a wool or ceiling?
Any feedback on the effectiveness or not of these would be greatly appreciated! :)

2022.01.25 14:29 xXKILLA_D21Xx [USA-MI] [H] Ryzen 5 3600, G.Skill 2x8 3600Mhz kit, Corsair Void Wireless headset [W] PayPal or Local Cash
Hey, happy 2022 folks! Got some PC parts and peripherals I'm getting rid of to start off the new year.
First up is my reliable Ryzen 5 3600. I recently replaced it with a 5800x, so I no longer need it. I've only had it for a year, so I haven't really done much with it that would stress it too much. It's never been OC'd and was cooled by a H115i Pro. It will also come with the standard Wraith cooler, it was never used. Asking for $150.00 local, or $160.00 shipped.
Next up is my old G.Skill TridentZ Neo 2x8 16GB RAM kit. This is a 3600Mhz kit, it was replaced with a 2x16GB kit over a year ago, so it's just been sitting around collecting dust in it's box ever since. Asking for $80.00 local, or $90.00 shipped.
Now if anyone is interested in buying both the Ryzen 3600 and the G.Skill RAM kit I'm willing to bundle both. Asking for $220.00 local or $230.00 shipped for the bundle.
Now, onto my old Corsair Void Pro Headset. I bought this to use at my old job a few years back. I haven't had any need for it since leaving my old job so it's just sitting in my closet. Asking for $50.00 local, $60.00 shipped.
Comment that you have PM'd me first if interested in anything on this list. For those interested in local pickup I'm based in the Metro Detroit area.

2022.01.25 14:29 phalo Some MMS never received
The last few days, I've noticed I am not receiving some MMS messages (and possibly some SMS, not sure on that).
It could be related to the Android messages feature showing emoji reactions to iMessage reactions rather than the 'liked "blah blah blah"' messages you get, but I don't know when that feature activated for me. I noticed that feature today and in testing it with a friend to see if he had it, I got a message from the iPhone user showing
Has anyone else noticed missing/never-received messages? Is there a fix if so or something I can try?

2022.01.25 14:29 YaGottaMindYaOwn Question about data reset
So I'm thinking of selling my Note 9. I have already factory reset it through the UI in settings. If I boot the phone to the "bios" by holding power and volume, and select factory reset will it do anything else or is factory resetting from the UI good enough?
Just want to be sure all the data on the phone is totally erased. Passwords, banking info etc.

2022.01.25 14:29 BioDriver Genesis DURABILITY?
I’m in the research phase of my next car, a compact luxury sedan a la 3-series et al. Whenever I mention this online, everyone shouts from the rooftops that I should get a Genesis G70. And whenever I bring up my concerns about build quality, I’m constantly assured that their cars are much more reliable.
I know that. Independent tests have confirmed that. But that’s not what I’m asking.
In the past, Korean cars (and many modern cars) have had problems with their interiors falling apart. Be it low quality parts, poor workmanship, shoddy QC, or other factors, the interiors seem to wear and break faster than their competitors. Hell, even 2021 and earlier C classes suffered from horrible creaking and loose interior panels, and Infiniti and Nissan upholstery has worn and torn much faster than others. Hyundai had this problem for decades, so that’s always my hesitation towards buying anything from a Korean auto manufacturer.
So my question is this - how is the interior durability and build quality of the new Genesis fleet? Are they gonna last for a decade, or will seams start bursting and panels rattle within 2 years?

2022.01.25 14:29 Confident_Flan_5950 Cosas que les paso de niños? Y que ahora se dan cuenta que esas cosas estaban mal
Les cuento el mio: Cuando era niño yo iba a mi escuela acompañado de mi mamá para reuniones de las materias (esto se hacía 3 sábados por mes) yo iba a la escuela con una pelota de futsal ya que siempre quedábamos con mis amigos de jugar, pero un día llegué y mi mamá se fue a la reunión pero ninguno de mis amigos estaba (cabe aclarar que las reuniones eran de todos los grados y también venía estudiantes de los demás grados) y entonces yo subí a el teatro de mi escuela donde casi nadie entraba, siempre llevaba mis juguetes para jugar en el coche de mi mamá (tenía 7 años) yo estaba jugando ahí solo, y entro una chica que no se si ya me habría estado viendo por la puerta, entro muy silenciosamente, me asustó y me empezamos a hablar, hasta que ella me de jugar un juego (yo no era tímido ni nada así que no le temía a la chica) y yo acepté, ella me.dijo que íbamos a jugar a la mamá y el hijo, recuerdo que había una mesa muy grande y con un mantel que llegaba al suelo, ella me dijo de meterme debajo de la mesa y me empezó a abrazar, después me empezó a besar, yo le dijo que no haga eso, pero ella me dijo que así son las mamás y que no me preocupara, recuerdo que me empezó a tocar, y yo me sentía incómodo, también me hacía tocar sus partes femeninas ( jajsha no se como describirlo) y me decía que nos estábamos bañando y yo le tenía que limpiar a ella, esto lo estuvo haciendo como 1 mes y medio, hasta que dejé de ir al colegio por que los directores prohibieron que vayan a los estudiantes por un sábado encontraron 2 estudiantes en estado de ebriedad.
Nunca me atreví a contarle a nadie sobre esto porque ella me dijo que si le contaba a alguien de esto mi papá se iba a morir y yo me lo creí, ahora que tengo 17 años me doy cuenta que en realidad lo que me estaba haciendo era ilegal y cuenta como violación. Ella tenía como 16 o 17 años.

2022.01.25 14:29 AnnieMarieMorgan Fish Eyes
Before we were monkeys, or even mammals we were reptiles. Before that we were slimy amphibians clawing our way up on land, and going back that far brings us to the common ancestor of all the tetrapods on land. It brings us back to the time when us, and birds, and deer and dogs, were all the same creature.
But before even that, we were fish. That was about 430 million years ago, when those first bony fish started using their fins to support themselves on land. Looking at them now you wouldn’t think we had very much in common. We’ve done away with the scales and gills and fins. But those fins formed the bases for our arms and legs, and if you think about it, compared to the other life in the ocean, all of us land animals still have eyes and bilateral symmetry. We still have mouths and the same senses, though we’ve lost electroreception, and our hearing is much different.
One of the most obvious ways that evolution has left us with memories of our aquatic ancestry is in our eyes. I’m sure you all remember learning about refraction in middle school or elementary school. I’ll give you a refresher, just in case. Take a spoon and put it in a clear glass of water, and you’ll see that it appears to bend at the barrier between the air and water. It’s an optical illusion, one left over from when we all had fish eyes.
See, our eyes evolved in the water, and they were made to either look underwater at more water, or look up at the air from the water. Our eyes are not made to look into the water from the air, so there’s a kind of glitch in perception there because we never developed the need to fix it. Our eyes worked fine enough to survive even with that glitch, so throughout all of our evolutionary history we’ve kept that small reminder that we were not originally made to live on land.
Now, with that background out of the way, the reason I’m telling you this is because there is something wrong with my eyes. I learned about refraction in school, and I learned that everyone else saw it, but I never did. If I put a spoon in water, or look at my legs in a river, they look perfectly straight. I’d mentioned this to my doctor as a child, but he didn’t believe me, so I’ve never really brought it up or thought about it much. I kind of thought in a self important way that maybe my eyes had a mutation of some kind, and left it at that.
It was something I’d wonder about every once in a while, but I never really yearned for answers, and I never really thought I would get them. It was just one of those things.
Until last week that is. I think I finally know what’s going on, why my eyes are like this. I have some theories, but first I need to tell you about what happened.
I’d never been to the ocean before. My buddy John has family out in Hawaii and he was planning a trip out there to visit his great aunt. He invited me to go, and of course I accepted, it’s Hawaii, I wasn’t going to say no.
The first day we had to ourselves John took me on a hike so we could visit a less crowded part of the beach. We ended up finding a lovely little lagoon to hang out in, and decided to just swim and laze around. John is one of those people who always has crazy hypotheticals up his sleeve, or he’s ready to plan in depth for what we would do in the zombie apocalypse, so I could easily spend all day just hanging out with him. We’d brought food, and lots of sunscreen and decided we might just hang out at the lagoon all day.
The water was perfect and the bright sun shining through the leaves made those little patches of sparkly water in between the cool striped shadows from the trees. There were so many birds there too, chirping and fluttering around. It was my first real experience in the ocean, and it was absolutely perfect.
We were having a heated argument about what a human/centaur hybrid baby would look like when I first saw it.
At first I thought it was the shadow of a bird flying overhead, there was just a dark shape moving smoothly and quickly over the water. But a glance up showed nothing in the sky. Though it looked like some of the smaller birds were taking off.
I realized then that it was something in the water and immediately started worrying about sharks. I yelled “John! There’s something in the water”
“Oh shit” He started swimming for shore and we both scrambled up as the shadow grew closer.
“It’s right there!” I said, pointing, though I’m sure that wasn’t necessary, the thing looked huge. But it was kind of hard to tell what exactly it was. The water was rippling, distorting the image, but it looked almost like it was clear. Like an enormous jellyfish, or maybe it was just a huge plastic bag and I was freaking out over nothing. But it moved so fast, it definitely seemed alive. It came to a stop right at the shore near us.
“I don’t see it?” John said.
“What do you mean, it’s right there!” I was getting agitated now “Let's move back”
We took a few steps back and the thing stilled.
Then, it began to change colors, and as it did more of it’s form presented itself. The midsection became pale beige and the upper bit grew dark. The bottom half was beige as well, but separated off into two distinct sections.
“It uh. It kinda looks like a body, John.” I said
“I don’t know what you’re talking about, I don’t see anything.”
I started to wonder if I was hallucinating, it had looked clear before, and now looked like the lifeless form of a woman with long dark hair floating in the shallows. Or perhaps it was a body and I just didn’t see it right as it was floating over, because of the shadows from the trees overhead.
I realized then sort of passively that the birds had stopped singing, in fact a glance up showed that they had all fled. It was so quiet, aside from us.
Something strange was happening. I took a few steps closer and made out the form more clearly as the water stilled around it. There were long dark strands floating around the top of it like hair, and it appeared to have legs, though it was hard to make out any feet or knees, they were just kind of tubes. I wondered if it had been decaying?
I took another step closer, and John said nothing. I now know that he wasn’t able to see what I could.
The form was very still, and I started to wonder if maybe a shark had brought it over, intending to feed. Perhaps the shark had blended into the water more, but then fled leaving just the body. It had all happened so fast, and I was panicking, so I couldn’t be sure I’d been seeing everything right.
The form moved closer to shore, and I didn’t shy away. Part of it peaked above the water near the middle, and I realized very quickly I was looking at a woman's torso, as two breasts rose above the surface. That made me step back.
“It’s a fucking body John”
“I still don’t see anything man”
Then I realized that her skin still looked healthy, it still had some pink to it. And I wondered if she might not be dead after all. I’d have to try CPR.
I stepped forward, and put one foot into the water, reaching my arms under to grab her torso.
She felt wrong, and I quickly decided she was probably dead and must be decaying. But there wasn’t any kind of smell. Her back felt like there were lots of small hard coils or ropes rather than one solid mass of flesh, and alarm bells started sounding off in my head.
I got a closer look at her face as she briefly rose up, and her eyes were just large blue dots on what looked like a smooth surface. I looked briefly at her mouth, trying to see if the rest of her face made sense, But before I could process that properly, one of her breasts lengthened, and then uncoiled into two large tentacles, which wrapped around my arm.
“What the fuck!” I screamed, as it’s hair reached up to grab me too.
I know now that John had no idea what was going on. He couldn’t see anything. But to his credit he ran over. He grabbed me, just as her hair wrapped around my legs, reaching up and grabbing my swim trunks as well.
John pulled as hard as he could as the creature dug into me, pulling my face to the surface of the water. I got a quick look at it’s fleshy head then, and the red blob that made up it's featureless mouth.
Then it constricted like a snake, and spasmed pulling my head underwater. It held me there briefly, but then loosened its hold. I jerked up and gasped for air, and saw blue liquid leaking out of one of its appendages, John had stabbed it with his pocket knife.
He pulled the knife out, then stabbed it again and again, digging into my flesh as well but I didn’t care, adrenaline was coursing through my veins and I only cared about not getting dragged into the water. I realized John must have been looking at where my skin was being pressed in, because to him there was nothing there.
I pointed to it’s awful face and said “Here John, get it here!” And he stabbed blindly, just catching the edge of one of it’s strange eyes.
It let go then, and sloughed into the water. John watched the splashing, but still couldn't seem to fixate on the creature. It left just as quickly as it had come, gliding into the open ocean.
We didn’t go in the ocean for the rest of the trip. I told John about what I’d seen in more detail and he believed me, after all he’d felt the thing grabbing me even if it wasn’t something his eyes could perceive.
We talked about it a bit after that, trying to come up with theories. I told John about the strange thing my eyes do, how they don’t seem to have any trouble looking into the water, when human eyes are supposed to. And he agreed that perhaps that was because I had indeed lost that evolutionary glitch.
We both quickly came to the conclusion that this creature may have been something that could camouflage from other sea life. Perhaps it could hide from the things descended from sea life as well, who’s eyes had evolved underwater.
We talked about the mermaid angle as well, and the resemblance it bore to that tale, but we couldn’t figure out exactly what it meant.
But when I sat down to write all of this down, I realized the rather obvious theory that perhaps I’m not the first person to have eyes that are further away from our fish eyes. Maybe on ships and coastal communities there have been other people like me who’ve spotted the creatures, and that’s where the legends came from.
But this theory indicates some disturbing ideas. That these creatures are intelligent enough to realize when their camouflage isn’t working, and try something else. And more than that, that they have been doing this for a while. It wasn’t mimicking me and John after all, it had presented as a woman, and maybe that was because throughout much of history it’s been mostly men on the sea, or out fishing.
But why go to the trouble of doing something so complex for just a handful of people? The complex strategy used for such an adaptation indicated a frightening level of intelligence. Perhaps it even spoke to a culture and history that these creatures possessed if they were passing an adaptation down to their young.
I thought then of Orca whales, how they’ll kill sperm whales just to eat the tongues, or sharks for their livers. They do this because they’re smart enough and deadly enough to be choosy, to only eat the best meat when it’s available. Perhaps mutants like me taste better.
That line of thinking brought me into the other traits that come along with intelligence as well. Kindness but also cruelty for the sake of it. I thought again of orcas, killing for sport, or house cats playing with their food, chewing off the legs of mice to watch them try and limp away. Then I thought of even darker possibilities, how sea otters will lure other animals into the water for their own sexual gratification or how violent dolphins are towards not only each other, but other sea life when they’re in heat.
I wondered then, why the beast I’d seen was hanging out near the shoreline, when there are quite literally plenty of fish in the sea. Why did it seem to be going for humans specifically? The legends of mermaids and sirens all talked about them using their looks to lure sailors to their doom. They were creatures who seduced humans for some reason, and I thought of the creature poking it’s fake breasts above the water, like it was trying to entice me.
I wondered if it planned on eating me, or if maybe it had something else in mind. I don’t know which fate sounds worse.
I know one thing for sure though. I’m never fucking going in the ocean again, and if you’re reading this, neither should you.
